    I could not wait
    Soooo After full power testing is now done. We are short of the 750 Watts I hoped for. Very low THD+N at .12% unweighted at 1k. Will test higher frequency when the wet load bank is done

    got 55volts or 378 Watts into 8 ohms. Did not heat up or blow up. Serious drop on rail voltage, so we passed the power supplies ability to charge the 18,000uf caps. Still makes a great amp in stereo or as a bass mono driver.

    Just was thinking and I had this running through the varic supply so will hope for better results when I test again. Right now playing Grover Washington and working great.

    If you go by a electric substation and see a crew working there, they might be able to give you some if you ask nice.

    Thanks for the idea. Walmart has it at $2 a quart so that may be easiest for me.

    Tested the amp again tonight with it plugged into a wall socket. Got 68 volts output before l blew the main fuse. So that is 578 Watts. Very low distortion
    Do not want to push the transformer over spec fuse at this time. Good enough for me.
